Foot and Ankle Surgery

Foot and Ankle Surgery


MedStar Good Samaritan's podiatric surgeons are highly trained in the latest techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of disorders, conditions and injuries of the foot and ankle. We have special training and expertise in the management of the complicated diabetic foot and reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery. We also treat patients for management or correction of painful bunions, hammertoes and heel spurs/plantar fasciitis, as well as reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery.

Podiatrists have special training and expertise in the management of the complicated diabetic foot.

Our technology, as well as our approach to treatment, is tailored to the specific needs of each individual patient. We offer the greatest level of comfort and minimally invasive techniques, which reduce recovery time and minimize hospital stay.

Learn more about foot and ankle conditions, and how we treat them.

Treatment Options

  • Bunion care can range from nonsurgical methods, such as wearing roomier shoes and using protective pads to cushion the painful area, to surgical methods employed to realign bone, ligaments, tendons, and nerves so the big toe can be brought back to its correct position.
  • Fracture Care treatment is different for each individual and depends on the extent of the fracture. Treatment can range from a special shoe or cast to surgery for more severe fractures. Our foot and ankle specialists and surgeons may use plates, metal or absorbable screws, pins, staples, or tension bands to hold the bones in place. Physical therapy is the second stage of treatment for a fracture, following the cast removal or surgery.
  • Tendon Reconstruction is a treatment employed to repair tendon tears. For less severe tears, suturing may suffice. If you have an acute tear, your doctor will use tendon tissue grafts, taken either from elsewhere in the leg or from a tissue bank, to make the repair.
  • Wound care can be critical because wounds on the foot and ankle are slow to heal on certain people, especially diabetics. Wounds can develop into ulcers from such conditions as such as lack of feeling in the foot, poor circulation, foot deformities, irritation, and trauma. Diabetic patients sometimes develop neuropathy (lack of feeling) in the feet that can leave wounds undetected. Vascular disease can also complicate a foot ulcer, reducing the body's ability to heal and increasing the risk for an infection.
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome Care Our foot and ankle specialists may implement conservative treatments such as rest, elevation, massage, anti-inflammatory medications, steroid injections, arch supports (orthotics), and/or better-fitting shoes. If conservative treatment does not provide results, your physician may suggest surgery during which an incision made in the ligament, located below the inside of the ankle, allowing room for the nerve to expand. If a cyst is impinging on the nerve, it can be removed.
